Eleventh Sunday in Ordinary Time
 Readings of the day: RB 13:12-14Mass: Ezk 17:22-24; Resp Ps 92; 1 Co 5:6-10; Mk 4:26-34



We are courageous.
We ‘aspire to please the Lord’, as St Paul tells us. The Lord continually calls us wherever we find ourselves, ‘whether we are at home or away,’ to nurture the seed of faith received at baptism so that faith sprouts and grows, bearing fruit in order to love and serve our neighbor in small ways each and every day. We never know the far-reaching impact of sharing ‘little details of love’ with those we encounter. Therefore, ‘we walk by faith, not by sight.’ Living and true God, grant us the strength we need to persevere in faith.
The goal of the whole process is not individual development,but how your ripeness will be harvested and become bread for others.(J. Shea)
THE SEED IS THE WORD OF GOD, CHRIST IS THE SOWER.ALL WHO COME TO HIM WILL LIVE FOREVER.Alleluia, alleluia.
